Paleo Honey Sesame Chicken

If you know me, you know that I love Chinese food. Whether it is some amazing sushi and hibachi or some non-authentic Chinese buffet. I live for it! If I had to choose one food to eat for the rest of my life…it would be sesame chicken! As you probably know, buffets aren’t known for being healthy and neither is Chinese takeout. So, I thought I would try to recreate my favorite dish. I came in to this with really high standards. I have made probably 10-15 different recipes over the last two years and I feel like I finally nailed it! It tastes like takeout. It tastes BETTER than most takeout. I’m pretty proud of this one and if I have it my way, we will be making weekly!

When I figure out the perfect cauliflower rice I will let you know. My current recipe is okay but really , I don’t want to share anything that isn’t great! You could also serve this meal over regular rice if you aren’t Paleo or some spaghetti squash lo-mien (yum!).
